OptoFidelity Joins LaSAR Alliance for Augmented Reality Wearable Devices

Alliance formed to accelerate development of augmented reality eyewear applications

PISCATAWAY, N.J., Feb. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The LaSAR Alliance (Laser Scanning for Augmented Reality) announces the addition of OptoFidelity to their membership. OptoFidelity has a long history of providing high accuracy test and metrology equipment for AR devices throughout the entire product lifecycle from R&D and mass production.

OptoFidelity is the global leader in designing and manufacturing automated test systems for measuring the image quality, optical and tracking performance of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) devices. Global production requires international service coverage and OptoFidelity matches it with its presence in three continents.

The LaSAR Alliance was established to create an ecosystem to enable the efficient design and manufacture of augmented reality (AR) wearable devices, including smart glasses and head-mounted displays. The alliance aims to facilitate the exchange and sharing of information, to create, build and grow effective and compelling LBS (Laser Beam Scanning) -based solutions, and to help drive the growth of the market for AR wearables in general.

“LaSAR welcomes OptoFidelity to the Alliance and looks forward to their contributions to building the solid foundation on which we can all drive the growth of augmented reality wearable devices through laser beam scanning solutions,” said Dr. Bharath Rajagopalan, Chair of the LaSAR Alliance and Director, Strategic Marketing at STMicroelectronics.

“OptoFidelity is excited to be a member of LaSAR Alliance. We would be working closely with ecosystem and industry to define the future characterization methods and standards of AR wearables.
